A YELLOW weather warning has been issued for tonight across Hampshire.

The Met Office is warning people of possible sleet and hail as well as wind and heavy rains from this evening until tomorrow morning.

Portsmouth and surrounding areas are expected to miss most of the bad weather but could still get strong winds and rain.

Following the warning, Hampshire County Council will have its highway teams at the ready to keep the roads clear.

Salting vehicles will start at 9pm tonight and extra highway crews will be standby.

Councillor Sean Woodward, executive member for transport and environment at the council, said: ‘We are ready to send out highways crews around the clock to keep Hampshire’s roads clear, and will do all we can to make sure people can go about their day to day business as far as possible whatever the weather.

‘I would, however, urge people to drive according to the conditions, and if the weather gets particularly severe to consider if their journeys are essential.’
